When co-stars hook up (then break up)
Anne Heche sure loves 'em and leaves 'em. ET is reporting the Men in Trees star has left husband Coley Laffoon (with whom she has a son) for co-star James Tupper. Heche and Tupper's characters are romantically involved on the show.
But here's the problem with co-stars hooking up: they often eventually break up. And when they do, it sure causes havoc with TV storylines.
Case study #1: Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson on The O.C. The young couple recently called it quits, and it totally shows. Seth and Summer aren't sharing scenes much, and when they do, they're at odds. Mostly, Seth has been off with Ryan, Dr. Roberts in Seattle or Che on a ridiculous (but funny) quest to find their spirit animals. Kissing has been at a minimum, and looks awkward when it happens. Now, it looks like they're introducing a "Che is in love with Seth" storyline to keep the stars apart even more.
Case study #2: Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush. After he allegedly cheated on her, the One Tree Hill pair got divorced. I'm sure that Lucas' budding romance with Peyton was already in the cards (yeah, right).
Oh, actors always claim they can be professional and work through it. But real-life drama always ends up on screen.
On-set relationships: romantic or trouble? What do you think?
